Se trata de un sistema novedoso y versátil diseñado para abordar todos los aspectos y dificultades relacionados con el trabajo en tejados. El sistema se adapta a cualquier trabajo realizado en una cubierta, desde empizarrar y embaldosar hasta otras operaciones como instalar paneles solares y otros sistemas de energías alternativas. La empresa busca socios industriales con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia, comercialización con asistencia técnica y financiación.


Specialist platform system for slating, tiling and other roofing applications
An Irish company with a background in roofing and construction has developed a lightweight platform system and equipment that allows workers on roofs to work safely, in a seated position, with increased speed and safety. This is a novel, versatile system that is designed to address all of the issues and difficulties associated with working on roof installations. They seek industrial partners to form license agreements, commercial agreements with technical assistance and financial agreements.
Working on pitched roofs has always been a physically demanding occupation involving long periods kneeling in awkward positions and wet conditions. Also the working environment in question is inherently dangerous due to the risk of falls and this danger is often compounded by issues associated with moving building materials such as slates, tiles and other building materials across the surface of the roof.

An Irish company with many years of experience in the roofing and construction industry have developed and patented a complete access system that addresses the difficulties of this particular working environment.

This system allows workers to fix slates and tiles while in a seated position. It facilitates ease and speed of movement for both the worker and work materials over the roof area.

This system would suit any situation where work needs to be carried out on a roof, other than the slating and tiling operations. This increasingly involves operations such as fixing of solar panels and other alternative energy systems.

The company are manufacturing the system and it is available for demonstration. They are however interested in manufacture under license agreements with suitable companies.

They are also seeking suitable partners who can assist them both commercially and financially, so their product can access new markets and territories.

Advantages and Innovations:
The advantages over current practices include;
- Increased safety for operative while working
- Improved working position and comfort
- Increased speed of operation
- Increased ease of movement of equipment and materials over the roof area
- Possibly a reduction in personnel required to complete a given job
Stage of Development:
Already on the market
Patents granted
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
The company has patents granted in New Zealand and South Africa. Patent pending in Australia and a patent that is in the process of being granted in Europe.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
This system would be of interest to an end user who would be required to carry out installation work on a pitched roof.

Potential partners for this technology offer would be
companies currently supplying equipment or products to the roofing market. Also companies producing access equipment, ladders, scaffold etc who are interested in a new product range and engineering companies trying to diversify into new areas.

Ideally, but not necessarily, the partner would have an established route to market for a product of this type. The company offering this technology are currently manufacturing and supplying to their local market but recognise that their product has a wider market appeal and potential in many installation applications.

With this in mind they are interested in the following mutually beneficial partnering arrangement (license, commercial, financial agreement) with suitable partner companies who can assist them in commercialising their product and targeting other markets and territories.
